The Great Food Truck Race

There is a new show on the Food Network called the Great Food Truck Race. It is such an awesome show!! The contestants have a business where they sell food out of a truck or van that is all set up with a kitchen and a window to sell their food from. They start in one city and they are given a certain amount of money to buy their food, then after 2 days they total what they have earned and who ever has the most money wins. Now it's on to the next city!! It's pretty amazing to watch them work and figure out the best way to make money. They have to make sure it's a place where there is a lot of foot traffic so people will be sure to walk by and they have to buy quality food for a cheaper price. So far they have been to 3 different city's and next Sunday night they are going to be in New Orleans. So check it out!!

Watching this show has really inspired me! My mom and I have always talked about having our own business and as I'm sure you know we love to cook!! I don't necessarily want to have my own restaurant, but I could see having a food truck! It would be so cool to go and pull up at different spots and sell our food to people! Now my wheels are turning, so let's see what the Lord wants to do!!

Ready or not, here I come!!

In 25 day's, no matter if I am ready or not, I will be getting married. Now of course I am excited about getting married, who wouldn't be!!? But I am ready for the planning part to be over with! I can't believe how many details there are to think about. Just when I think everything is covered, 3 more things pop up! I'm sure it will be over before I know it, then I'll wish I could go back and do it all over again! But for now the countdown is on!

On a lighter note, I have been having a lot of fun crafting and making things for my wedding! Starting with my invitations. They were pretty easy to make, just time consuming to put together! I am so happy with the way they turned out! Next my table assignment boards. I took cork boards and covered them with fabric, then I will attach the seating cards (which i am also making) to it with push pins.

Soon I will post pictures up all my projects!

Then after the wedding I am going to take on a really big project! I am going to sew my chair cushions for our dining room chairs. I am so excited to start them. I already have the fabric, so I just need to get the foam to fit inside! I almost bought the inserts at Joannes, but I found better ones that are cheaper at Walmart. I hope they will turn out nice!

RJ bought us some new nightstands and dressers from Craig's list. He sanded them all down and painted them so they look brand new! So to dress them up even more I bought new handles for the nightstands from Anthropology. They look really cool!

I'm so excited to decorate our apartment and make it feel like home!!
